Bold Color and Pattern in the Bathroom

We're big fans of bold color and pattern, especially in small spaces. Bringing a kick of color or a punch of pattern into the room adds vibrancy—which we often need in the morning! Here are some of our favorite ways to add some impact to your bathroom…

The room above, designed by Cynthia Rowley, was featured in Elle Décor in October 2008. Rowley really turns up the volume with a vinyl wall treatment and fuchsia accents throughout.

Too commitment-phobic to paint, wallpaper or tile? This room in Livingetc shows the impact of a bold, colorful piece of furniture coupled with a large piece of bright artwork. When you change your mind about the décor, simply move them and you're back to a blank canvas.

Livingetc also features this room that is punctuated by a bold, colorful wallpaper. By using a simple white basin, small white dresser and a simple mirror, the wallpaper adds just enough drama.

This stunning tile work shown in Livingetc shows what a little ingenuity with ceramic, glass or other types of tile can do on the bathroom walls.

ReadyMade has a great instructable on creating a faux-bois painted finish to a bathroom wall. We love the idea of combining this organic texture with a rich color.
